Again, this might change with Carson Wentz being in a different environment. But there is just no telling what his 2020 strugles with the Philadelphia Eagles have done for his confidence until we see him on the field in 2021.

The Indianapolis Colts made a bold move to bring Wentz to the organization after Philip Rivers announced his retirement. The former No. 1 overall selection will be working behind a premier offensive line for the first time in his career and reuniting with Frank Reich is another major factor in a potential turnaround that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Wentz was on a hiding to nothing for the Eagles from the moment Nick Foles led them to a championship while he was injured. His clear lack of conviction under center was there for all to see last season and the fact Philadelphia used their second-round pick on Jalen Hurts in 2020 would indicate they probably saw this coming.

Teddy Bridgewater has his flaws, but he outperformed Wentz in 2020 and, at least for now, he would be an upgrade unless the beleagured signal-caller can turn things around as he enters the last chance saloon with the Colts.

The Carolina Panthers might not be too keen on keeping Bridgewater around after just one year. But the fact they’ve already received calls for the veteran shows that he might still be held in high regard by some in league circles.
